Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E2 II A

Wireless File Transmitters & Adapters


The WFT-E2 II A is compact and designed to connect directly to the side of the EOS SLR. With an internal antenna and an ideal shape, it's designed not only to maintain the rugged, water resistance of the professional EOS body to which it's attached, but also to ensure that its placement does not interfere with shooting.
Connecting the camera to a network over Wi-Fi via the attached WFT-E2 II A couldn't be simpler. There are three ways to connect: with a Pushbutton Configuration (PBC Method), Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) PIN Method, or with a connection wizard through the camera's menu. No matter the situation or the level of security necessary, the WFT-E2 II A is designed to provide safe, speedy connections.
With the WFT-E2 II A, photographers can pair their camera and a computer for complete remote Live View composing, shooting and image transfer, with a direct wireless connection independent of a network or Internet connection. This means easy control of the shoot through a computer, netbook, iPod Touch or iPhone, onsite or off, and is a simple and effective way to confirm and shoot no matter the physical location of the subject and photographer.
With a WFT or FTP server, wireless remote Live View shooting is possible over the Internet, making it possible to set up, shoot and record images from a remote location. Meanwhile, through a local connection, FTP connection or by connection to a remote server, images can be transferred, backed up and viewed from almost anywhere, in an instant.
GPS devices can be connected to the WFT-E2 II A to transmit location and elevation data along with the EXIF data for each image. With Bluetooth, photographers can fully employ GPS units without the concern of tangled wires, and can connect directly to Bluetooth compatible printers. GPS units and external storage can also be connected via USB for more flexibility.
Camera linking makes it possible for up to 10 cameras to shoot the same subject simultaneously, from different angles. Up to 10 cameras can be connected without a WAP or network, and then be set up to take a shot the instant the shutter is released on the Master (Main) camera. With an effective distance range up to approximately 330 feet, this linked shooting is invaluable for the best possible capture of sports, news and wildlife.

Using a fully charged LP-E4. Under Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) conditions for testing shooting capacity, when using automatic image transfer with images that are approximately 6MB. Fewer images can be transferred if the wireless LAN transfer rate drops, and for consecutive image transfer over wireless LAN. Fewer images can be transferred when using bus-powered external media or GPS devices. If the remaining battery level drops below 19%, captured images cannot be transferred or backed up to external media.
